In order to activate the contract, both parties need to sign the contract. There are two scenarios for contractors.

My client has created a contract and sent it to me

In this case, you will receive an email invitation to sign the contract. Click on the Review & Sign button on the email- the contract link is embedded and leads directly to it. You will not see the unsigned contract on your dashboard, you need to access it from the email. Alternatively, your client could have sent you the direct link which should take you to the contract page.

After you created the contract, you will need to send it to your client for signature. Once the client has signed, you will be able to sign it as well. Just enter your client's email and add a message. They will receive the email notification.
